In Los Angeles on Wednesday, Taylor Swift performed her sixth and last "Eras Tour" concert at SoFi Stadium. During the event, she made a significant announcement that her devoted fans, known as Swifties, had been eagerly waiting for weeks.
At the concert, there was a surprise song segment where Taylor Swift performed two songs, including "New Romantics." While on stage, she announced that her next re-recording project will be her hugely popular album from 2014, "1989." "New Romantics" is a deluxe track from that album.
Taylor was planning this for a very long time to bring something out of the box for the audience and what can be more thrilling than to have a remake of a hit album of Taylor Swift's 1989 for real?
After that, she pointed everyone's focus toward the big video screen. On it, the album cover for Taylor Swift's 1989 was displayed, which confirmed that the album is set to be released in the month of October. Guess what? She has a surprise for every Swiftie out there. Swift said on Instagram on Wednesday night just after making her in-concert announcement, "1989 (Taylor's Version) is currently making its way to you, and the album influenced my life in multiple ways."
With each "Taylor's Version" album, she has added several versions of previously unreleased songs titled "From the Vault" together with the re-recorded originals, songs that did not make the final cut for the original album. In the post she wrote on Wednesday, Taylor Swift expressed her ongoing excitement about this album, describing it as her absolute favorite re-record she has worked on. She was unable to control her passion for the "insane" 5 From The Vault tracks featured as part of the release.
Exactly nine years before Taylor's Version is set to release, on October 27, 2014, the original 1989 was released. It's Swift's first full-length album since she switched to pop, and the title, her birth year, is meant to symbolize her "rebirth" in a new musical style.
Swift, who is now a global pop icon, has been re-recording all of the music she cut for her old company, Big Machine Records, to obtain the original masters for those tracks. She has already released Taylor's Version editions of Fearless, Red, and Speak Now.
